Sighting Details

I was walking on 7/11/2013 around the soccer field at the University of Cincinnati, Gettler Stadium, at 3:54am when due West, the direction I was walking at the time, a light appeared in the sky at 40 degrees up. The object was moving quickly at the size of star-like and quickly brightened to extremely bright, 10 to 100 times brighter than anything in the sky and to the size of an aspirin in the shape of a teardrop. So bright I felt like I was having a beam of light pointed at me. Then it dimmed all the way back down to star-like. At first, it looked like it was moving East, South East, towards me and across my view toward the south. However, after it dimmed, it appeared to just be moving South, South West. A loud boom or bang bounced off the ground near the campus toward the direction of the object. It is possible the noise was unrelated to the object, possibly a trash truck dumping a dumpster. After dimming, I followed the object across the sky with my unaided eye for about 20 seconds until I could no longer see the object due to distance and clouds. 8 minutes later, at 4:03am, in the same area of the sky and moving in the same direction I saw what appeared to be the same object moving the near exact path across the sky. I didn't see any brightening of the object this time. It too, about 10-15 seconds later disappeared due to distance and clouds. I was at the stadium from 3am til almost 5am and saw no other objects like it, nor heard any other loud booms. I thought it was a meteor skipping off the atmosphere, but once I saw it again, it seemed too much of a coincidence. The object appeared to be extremely far away. Possibly flying over between west side of Cincinnati and Indiana border.
